Session Name: Experiments in Social VR
Speaker(s): Stefan Welker, Luca Prasso
Company Name(s): Google, Google
Track / Format: Entertainment VR/AR
Overview: We know that social elements can create engaging VR experiences, but it takes a lot of work to craft best practices for a new platform. With that in mind, Google created a VR/AR prototyping team called Daydream Labs. DayDream Labs has built more than 90 prototypes with 20+ focusing specifically on shared spaces, avatars, and social interactions. In this talk, Rob Jagnow will share some of DayDream's favorite prototypes and discuss what they've learned so far, including lessons about bringing avatars to life and preventing antisocial behavior. He'll also share some projects that demonstrate how developers can think more broadly about social experiences.
